Blessed with a cool Ray Collins vocal, some hot horns and a sublime long-fade guitar solo from the main man, this is vintage Mothers, right down to the locked-down-tight rhythms of Roy Estrada and the percussive fills of Jimmy Carl Black and Arthur Dyer Tripp III.
You might say this is atypical Frank, but then what is typical Frank? From an early solo period when Zappa was embracing fatherhood with the birth of son Dweezil, this sumptuous track features studio-effect half-speed mastering and progressive fusion elements.
Imagine it as a bizarre cross between Steely Dan and Weather Report, and enjoy the journey while Shuggie Otis plucks his bass and the masterful Ian Underwood carries the horn and organus maximus parts. Fiendishly complex and funky, the track allows the ensemble to blow hard — none more so than Uncle Frank, whose long solo is a tour de force.
Remarkable, considering the subject matter. During another prolific year, Zappa teamed up in earnest with his labelmate, friend and kindred madman, Captain Beefheart aka Don Van Glen Vliet. However, the results were less avant-garde than one might expect.

Philadelphia Eagles. General Comment Yeah, So do I!! General Comment From reading the lyrics I get the sense that this song is about how parents of Zappa's fans didn't want their children listing to him. His "guitar" will symbolize rock. Hence, rock want to kill you parents because they are anti-rock. Does that sound right? General Comment I think that's pretty much dead on, Philadelphia Eagles! Zappa appeared before Congess in the mid 's to defend and debate "objectionable" lyrics and artists rights.
General Comment I just made a T-shirt with the title. It's pink.
